Irish hill runners and the Spine Race
The Spine Race is a 268 mile run up the Pennine Way in the north of England, run every January, invariably featuring snowdrifts, gales and many miles of sucking bog, much of it run in the dark. It's one of the world's toughest races and only 50% finish. This year Dubliner Carol Morgan was first woman home, knocking 43 hours off the women's record. Cork's Eoin Keith (who holds the course record) broke a rib on day 1 and carried on for another 150 miles before withdrawing, truly bonkers! Also well done to the only other Irish finisher, Patrick Rodgers, who made it in just after midnight last night - it's even harder when you're at the back.

Cullaun: A quick bag.

Aidand's directions are spot on. The road that looks like an entrance to a house actually leads into a forest, it is rough but manageable if you drive very slow. I drove as far as an old abandoned...

Nothing to add to simon3's directions. Like quite a few of the hills in North Tipperary, this one is through a Coilte forest track to begin with and then the tough push through some horrible groun...
